Daily Prompt: Art Appreciation

Do you need to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? To spend money on it?

Do I have to agree with an artist’s lifestyle or politics to appreciate their art? No in fact in the case of many pieces of public art, I have no idea who the person behind the name is when I first see a piece. If I am moved sufficiently, I will Bing or Google the artist to learn more about them, and see what other works they have done. To spend money on a piece of art, I would be moved more by the art, than the lifestyle of the artist. However the politics of the art, might cause me to not buy a piece.

Here are some pieces of public art for your perusal:
